It’s fall and apples are in season. This Apple cake is one of my favorites in the fall because it’s super easy and quite delicious! You can use any yellow cake recipe that you’d like for this cake, I went with a fluffy yellow cake recipe you can find here. I know my sister Olya will cringe at me saying this but if you’re in a rush you can even use Betty Crocker’s boxed yellow cake! I used 6 apples for this cake because I like the cake to have as many apples as the pan can fit, but feel free to change the number of apples you use to suit your taste.
6 Fuji Apples
1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F. Core, peel, and wedge apples into medium sized wedges. Set the apples aside.
2. Make your cake batter. Arrange your apple wedges in a radial pattern on the bottom of your cake pan. Using a large spoon pour the batter over the apples until the first layer of apples is just barely covered. Radially arrange another layer of apple wedges over the batter. Repeat this until you’re out of batter and/or apple wedges.
3. Cover your cake with foil and bake for about 50-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Remove the foil for the last 15 minutes to allow the cake to brown on top. Allow the cake to cool somewhat before serving. This cake goes well with a scoop of ice cream, some berries, and/or some amaretto.
